Unfortunately, in light of recent developments, we will be cancelling practices for the next two weeks. USA Swimming strongly recommends that all LSCs and clubs suspend USA sanctioned events for the next 30 days. Junior Champs has already been cancelled/postponed and 8&Under Champs should soon follow. Since our practice schedule follows Howard County School closings, at this time we will not be holding practices 3/13-3/27. The coaches will send out a couple practices for anyone that would like to get in some pool time during this break.
We will be using this time to get all of our paperwork together, update the website, etc. Keep checking your emails, we will be coming up with some activities to help keep your kids busy during their break from school and swim (t-shirt designs, logo designs, etc). We will also be announcing the final decision on the new team name and mascot.
Long Course- all of the April meets that we are able to attend fall within the 30 day period, so I will work on getting a few up beginning in May.
We are still in need of a board President. Anyone interested, please let me know.
We would again like to thank everyone for their support. I was blown away by the response from our swimmers asking how they could help. It was very touching to see how much they care. We would like to also form an athlete committee to allow them the opportunity to be heard as well. More to follow!
With these recent cancellations, we of course will be re-evaulating the financial situation. I would like to get a new team account set up before accepting checks. Any checks for cancelled meets will be returned. On a positive note, this breaks gives us some time to come up with a better solution. We will update as often as we can.
